    Well I'm not having the same issue, but when I wanted to create a csv file
    in my controller and one of the cells contains
    this -> ` rails is expecting something else, so I just add at the
    beggining of my controller the following

    #encoding: utf8

    and worked, maybe it helps

    yeah this is actually in a view that the error is occurring. I have
    tried to put this encoding statement in the view
    but to no avail. hopefully someone has had this problem and can
    instruct me . It seems
    like this would be a common error.

    The problem you're running into has to do with encoding mismatch
    (under ruby 1.9) in some data you're munging/rendering in that view.
    First thing you should do is check your config/setup regarding
    encoding:
    $ ./script/rails console...> __ENCODING__ => #<Encoding:UTF-8>
    Encoding.default_internal => #<Encoding:UTF-8>
    Encoding.default_external => #<Encoding:UTF-8>
    ActiveRecord::Base.configurations[Rails.env]["encoding"] => "utf8" ...
    Assuming your stack is properly setup for utf-8, then the most likely
    culprit is that you have some non-utf-8 binary char(s) in some data
    that is causing the problem (probably copy/pasted from ms-word into
    some form).
    Not the same error, but here's an example of a similar encoding-
    related problem:
    s = "foo™" => "foo™"
    s.encoding
    => #<Encoding:UTF-8>
    s.sub(/foo/, 'bar') => "bar™"
    s2 = "foo™".force_encoding("ASCII")
    => "foo\xE2\x84\xA2"
    s2.encoding
    => #<Encoding:US-ASCII>
    s2.sub(/foo/, 'bar')
    ArgumentError: invalid byte sequence in US-ASCII
    ...

    You can test/log the underlying data you're trying to render in that
    view to see what exactly is causing the problem in order to delete/
    replace it.

    The bigger issue is ... how to prevent and/or deal with this
    particular case when it happens again? Probably many diff ways to
    deal with this, but in such cases where I need to force the encoding
    to be valid utf-8 for a given submitted string no matter what, I've
    used something like the following:

    ...
    IC_UTF8 = Iconv.new('UTF-8//IGNORE', 'UTF-8')
    ...

    def force_utf8(str)
    #note added extra space plus chop to fix certain cases.
    IC_UTF8.iconv("#{str} ")[0..-2]
    end
    ...
    s2
    => "foo\xE2\x84\xA2"
    s2.encoding
    => #<Encoding:US-ASCII>
    s3 = force_utf8(s2) => "foo™"
    s3.encoding
    => #<Encoding:UTF-8>
    s3.sub(/foo/, 'bar')
    => "bar™"

    I dont know if it will help you but if you are not using mysql2 gem I
    recommend you try it as a first shoot!
